It's the holiday season again!  ...and we're winding down ADS-ON-HOLD's exciting 30th anniversary in classic jazz style once more!

All ADS-ON-HOLD® Subscribers—worldwide, will enjoy the timeless music favorites of Jazz Legends for their hold buttons this year.  Plus, to help celebrate our 30th year on-hold, we've arranged for some up close interviews with some of these great performers:

Joe Negri, PhD — Master Jazz Guitarist, most known for his 40+ year role as "Handyman Negri" on Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood. In our revealing interview segments, Joe tells us how shocked his parents were to hear him sing Italian operetta at the incredibly young age of 18 months! He then began his entertainment career on the radio at age three, playing the ukelele.

Nancy Wilson — With over 70 albums and three Grammy Awards, this complete entertainer has been labeled a singer of blues, jazz, cabaret, pop, and a consummate actress. The title she prefers is"Song Stylist." Beside the fact that both Joe Negri and Nancy Wilson have recorded some absolutely fabulous jazz in their time, both have something else in common. They've both shared the extraordinary talents of this man:

Marty Ashby — Five-time Grammy Award winning music producer, jazz musician, and VP/Executive Producer of MCG Jazz and nationally acclaimed Manchester Craftman's Guild. Marty's interview details what it's like to play with the world's leading performers in jazz concerts all over the country.
